2. FIRST JUMP COURSE +
PARACHUTE PACKING CLASS
Following the successful completion of your Tandem Skydive Cat B, you are ready to move on to your First Jump Course! This is an 8-hour training, consisting of self-study, classroom, and physical demonstration / hands-on learning sections, and also includes a parachute packing class.
3. ACCELERATED FREE FALL
Now you are ready to make that maiden jump with your own parachute! Through our comprehensive Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) Program, you will learn the fundamental life-saving skills every skydiver needs as well as a variety of in-air maneuvers and ultimately achieve solo flight.
WHAT IS A SKYDIVING “A” LICENSE?
The “A” license is the first license level you can achieve in skydiving.
It is issued by the USPA and requires a minimum of 25 skydives, along with demonstration of several basic skydiving skills. The “A” license allows you to skydive almost anywhere in world. It allows you to jump in groups with other licensed skydivers. Once you have earned your “A” license, you no longer need to jump with a coach or instructor of any kind.
